The Mandaean Calendar

We have four major holidays.
The dates all move forward one day with every leap year.

The “Benja” (Pronaya) next year is from
3/15/18, to 3/19/18 — these are the 5 days of creation.

The Dehfa Ed Mana is 5/19/18 –the celebration of the Baptism of Adam.

The Kersa is one 7/18/18 and 7/19/18 followed by the three days of the Dehwa Reba which is the Mandaean New Year.

Dehwa Hanina is on 11/3/18 — one day that represents the victory of life.

We will also be happy to answer any questions that you have.

Thank you for your interest.
